    The letter 'b' after the SM2 grade denotes the dog was over 3 years at time of scan. An 'a' would be over 5 years.

    The test is for Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. It means the dog had an MRI scan, which is fantastic as we struggle to get more breeders to participate in MRI scanning.

    CM = Chiari Malformation. The # 2 means the cerebellum is impacted into or herniates through the opening at the back of the skull (CM2 is the most common grade in Cavaliers). SM = Syringomyelia. The # 2 means that there is a syrinx present in the spine that is 2mm or more in maximum diameter. The letter b means the dog was between the age of 3 and 5 years old at the time of the scan.


    This chart explains it!
